Your theorem is illogical. A, B, & C do not fall in a straight line. (They may not even be in the same dimension.) You need remedial geometry.

Obama had already neutered the BC issue by releasing it.

__________________________________________

As you or that Buckeye dude already went crying to the mods about me (see the “Knock it off” order upthread), I’ll refrain from engaging you with the same level of name calling as you guys are calling me. But I don’t care. Really. Keep calling me names if it makes you feel better.

But for you to say “Obama had already neutered the BC issue by releasing it”, just reinforces your complete lack of knowledge and understanding about this fundamental issue.

“Obama had already neutered the BC issue by releasing it.”

Really? And so now all the birther threads are all gone? No one is questioning Obama any further? Wow. You must be ecstatic.

Now. If we we could only focus on the real issues and get another “John McCain” to be the GOP frontrunner and have a repeat of 2008... everthing will be just peachy.

Newt just committed politicide with his idiotic comments (what’s new); and all the pundits who think Daniels has a chance only have to look at this ruling from the Indiana Supreme Court. No, it’s not his jurisdiction as such, but to not immediately attack this=lack of leadership.

(2) Trump proved one thing—going directly at Obama (hard) works. Obama is vunerable on the issues, and if the GOP would go after Obama on the issues they will win.

Ding. Ding. Ding!

Rush, who is always right, said this from the get-go: Donald Trump (but not as the '12 candidate) ... has provided a winning blueprint for defeating n0bama in 2012.

You really are a world-class jerk. I am not a critic on birther threads. I am sympathetic to what they are saying about the lack of proof that Obama has provided.

But that sympathy sure gets strained when arrogant a-holes like you claim that if you aren't with you 100 percent, you're an Obama supporter.

And since you were dumb enough to fall for Trump in the first place, I guess you're too dumb to realize that polling shows no political damage to Obama over the BC issue. Whereas Trump looks like the combover blowhard he has always been.

If people eliminate a candidate for consideration based on irrelevant criteria such as having a supermodel wife, then I don’t think it is a stretch to say this county is going down because people are stupid.

While I agree with that, calling the Chinese motherf***ers lacks a certain diplomatic finesse. (It's one thing to think that, another to say it where a microphone will pick it up.)

Imho, he'd made up his mind not to run even before then.

I don’t believe Trump ever could have won the Republican nomination, but if he had, we would have had the two greatest narcissists currently in the political arena going head-to-head (I don’t count WJC as still being in the political arena since I see no conceivable scenario in which he runs for any political office except possibly UN Secretary General).

Trump had his strengths and I do believe showed Obama’s vulnerabilities, but whatever strengths he had were greatly outweighed by his out-sized ego and narcissistic lack of perspective (taking credit for having pointed out OBL was in Pakistan? Please!). He’s framed his decision not to run as America’s loss—i.e., IF he’d decided to run, he woulda been a great candidate (perhaps because he went to the “best college in America?”). If he were honest with himself and us, he would acknowledge that the reason he pulled out because he didn’t want to lose. If he seriously thought he could win, there would be nothing stopping his feeding his massive ego by adding POTUS to his trophy collection.

So ... so ... so Trump was just doing this for the publicity all along?

Well, you know, he did say a few weeks ago that whenever he announced his decision, people were going to be surprised. Some people are...I guess.

Maybe he has to go join "his people in Hawaii" who are investigating Ozero's birth certificate and "can't believe what they're finding!" That sounds like really important, sooper seekrit stuff with which "his people" probably need his expert assistance. Yeah...that's the ticket.

"Obama had already neutered the BC issue by releasing it."

Not sure what definition of "neutered" your working off of, but recent polls [1][2] indicate a sizable portion of the country questions Barry's LFBC and/or his eligibility.

I wouldn't be surprised if those numbers increase as more people realize they've been snookered by Barry once more.

They just aren't buying anything Barry has for sale.

Where are the reports from the “investigators in Hawaii”? If you were so shocked by what they were uncovering, shouldn’t you share it with the rest of us?

“I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately­, the general election. I have spent the past several months unofficial­ly campaignin­g and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately­, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.…I look forward to supporting the candidate who is the most qualified to help us tackle our country’s most important issues and am hopeful that, when this person emerges, he or she will have the courage to take on the challenges of the Office and be the agent of change that this country so desperatel­y needs.”

So you think you’re the best man for the job.

But at the same time, you’re too selfish to put aside your personal ambitions for the good of the nation.

And then again, you’ll support whoever is the NEXT most qualified after your illustriou­s self and you’ll hope that they’ll be able to deal with the challenges facing the country.

Trump, you’re a despicable human being, who has been using the very real turmoil our country is in for your own selfish publicity. Your name deserves to be vilified by anyone who truly cares about our great republic.

Keep it up. You have my permission.

But I will say you are a liar. “And since you were dumb enough to fall for Trump in the first place.” Apart from giving credit to trump for the damage he did to Obama, I have NEVER supported Trump in his cockamamie bid for President.

But you go right on with your attacks. It makes our side look better.

Who cares if someone is or was a birther or isn’t?

Shows what a mess the primaries are and will be and the sad split of confusion I fear.

As the conservative circular firing squad continues.....

Each day reading threads here is almost breaking my heart. This isn’t a group of people fighting for their ideals, I’m sorry to say, this has become a game for conservatives to destroy those candidates they don’t like.

Name the candidate and you’ll get a myriad of responses as to why THAT candidate can “never win”.

It’s sad.

The document Obama released. Not everyone goes and does a three-layer photoshop analysis of it. A lot of folks see it as legit, and the continued focus on the BC as a distraction when there are far bigger issues going on.

No confusion here dirtboy. One can not be a multi-national and a "natural born Citizen." A "citizen" and a multi-national? Yes, of course. But not a "natural born Citizen" there's a difference.

Office Citizenship Age Residency (or years citizen)
Commander in Chief natural born Citizen 35 14 years resident
Senator Citizen 30 9 years a Citizen
Represantative Citizen 25 7 years a Citizen

Would you like for Barry to set a precedent that merely being born in the country makes one eligible to be the Commander in Chief of the armed forces...opening the way for legal visitors with no attachment to the country...or anchor babies to be eligibile? Cause, they would be if jus soli is all that it takes.

Bachmann's my choice and Barry's eligibility is a big issue for me. I'm concerned about more than one issue...I can walk and chew gum. You know, Multi-task.

Oh, and the economic issues have been dwarfing Barry's eligibility issues since the get go...no need to wait till 2012 for that.

You know that Certifigate is more - much more - than “Obama was born in Kenya”, and you know that’s not what me and dirtboy are arguing about.

I’m just stating that Trump (idiot that he is) was in fact a useful idiot in the damage he did to Obama.
